investment in energy policy not just energy politics. >> the senator was in florida for a birthday celebration and he talked on the presidential campaigns. if you missed his speech it's available at journal@cspan.org. other headlines from the chicago tribune. 25 years after the death of harold washington. are black chicagoans better off? this from the baltimore sun. something we're seeing a lot more of in major metropolitan areas. fast money. cameras are plentiful and profitable but are they accurate and reliable. baltimore sun. the richmond times focuses on the international story is expanding air strikes and hamas levelled in ga savment back to policy issues whether or not medicare and medicaid in social security should be all part of the discussion in terms of bringing down the nation's debt. bob. north carolina good morning. republican line. caller: good morning. i would like to point out whenever somebody you know suggests privatizeing the social security system. demonize this push and go people in wheelchairs over a cliff. and in fact, in galveston where they opted out they'r
but continuing with the theme of abundance, we will see the development of an energy surplus because of technological advances in exploiting both oil and natural gas resources, combined with new energy efficiency measures that will greatly reduce u.s. energy use. now the u.s. is now predicted, the international energy agency, predicts the u.s. will be the, will be the number one producer of oil by 2020. it will also be probably close to the top in the producers of natural gas. this will give us the wealth and income, mike lindh mentioned -- lind, mentioned 1 1/2% of gdp, we have 16 to 20 years to make up for the short fall in, in social security and 4 to 5% in medicare. well, the explosion of a moving from a energy deficit to a energy surplus will more than half close that gdp gap. so, we have a economic conditions that suggest that the challenges we face are the exact opposite of what the bowles-simpson grand bargain would impose on us as a growth strategy. the conditions that we're going to face over the next five to eight years with some amelioration if we do the right things are
energy sector. the american wind energy industry is in jeopardy. the production tax credit will end december 31, 2012. it must be extended or else 30,000 jobs will be lost and 450 manufacturing businesses will close. two additional measures must also be considered. first, we could apply the master limited partnership and the real estate investment tax programs to the green energy sector and thereby bring significant financing opportunities along with the production tax credit. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from tennessee, mrs. black, for five minutes. mrs. black: thank you, mr. speaker. while the president returned from the campaign trail last week with a slightly more conciliatory tone, his insistence on a year end tax hike on small businesses is unchanged, and frankly that is completely unacceptable. it is unacceptable for more than 23 million americans struggling for work right now. it's unacceptable for millions of middle-class americans struggling to support their families with rising gas prices an

about opportunities in the areas of trade and energy and other global affairs that really should be taken advantage of by the united states moving forward. but we have to -- we emphasize as well there are three issues that were on an old agenda that had not been resolved and stood in the way of more productive relationship between the u.s. and latin america. these issues were drugs, cuba, and immigration. the first two issues were important at the summit of the americas. the report was released right before the summit of the americas. the first two issues were raised at the summit. the presidents get a mandate to the american states to study the drug issue and the president made it clear there would not be another summit or unlikely another summit unless there was cuban participation in the summit. those issues certain were prominent. i think the election results had interesting implications for all three of these. perhaps the most important is the last one, immigration, which was not on the summit agenda. i think it has raised some expectations that this may be a real opportunit
at the "national journal," covers energy and environmental issues. also the author of this great book called "the human cost of bp's rise to power," terrific book. he's an expert on all things bp which is a good thing because bp has just settled and has agreed to pay our government $4.5 billion related to this spill in the gulf. first of all mike, what do you make of it? >> it is an amazing amount of money. eric holder said yesterday it is the biggest criminal settlement in u.s. history. i think the last one was around half of that or less than half of that against the drug company. yet at the same time, there are people who say it is not enough. given the scope of this spill. in fact, one group, a public citizen yesterday said $4 billion is about 20% of bp's annual profits these days. >> oh, man. >> the government gave them five years to pay these penalties down. and now about half of that money will go back into the gulf. according to holder. for restoration efforts. >> national fish and wildlife foundation. >> rig
frequency are we using in the electronic magnetic spectrum. how much energy are we putting out? are people measuring it? do we know what we need to know about that? the answer was we did a pretty good job at one time during the cold war. some of you may remember emission control. that was a consistent effort we had. not so much now. frankly, we haven't had to do that. we need do what i guess i would call take care of our electromagnetic high gene to know how much are we putting out there that is being picked. what frequency? why do we use the frequency do. can we hop frequency as we build new systems? it will be important 39 potential adversaries and new systems that are coming in that measure that. troping magnetic spectrum is important. we need to sustain the undersea domino the undersea domain. a that's continuing a networking-approach. it's it's important have submarines. they are a main part in the undersea domain. that's a matter of having systems. it's pa aircraft, it's surface ships with the appropriate sonar and rays, it's fixed system on the bottom. it's un-- unmanned underwater
energy and bio tech. he's governor of washington state. today andrew cuomo came out and said he will be asking for $30 billion for new york state in storm relief. that money would be in part to shore up new york's infrastructure so it can withstand storms of increased frequency and increased severity due to climate change. so while the new governor of washington will be out fighting climate change, the governor of new york is asking for money to make us more resilient to damage from climate change. maybe even climate change heading off further climate change, maybe that could be in the realm of possibility for a second term. what about the things that we know the president wanted to accomplish in his first term? he wanted to get done in his first term and didn't do. what about closing guantanamo? remember when that was the plan? maybe that's back in the realm of possibilities. let's go out on a wild hair. what about ending the war in afghanistan ahead of schedule? could a second obama term see the war ending earlier? what's within the realm of possibility now? what can democrats

kind words about me. taxes is growing by leaps and bounds. this is made our country much more energy independent and has brought the price of natural gas down. i hope we can agree we don't want to reverse that and continue to go forward with these wonderful changes that have taken place in energy. we have a chance to see a renaissance in manufacturing. a lot of these jobs going overseas may come home. i have been asked and i would make three quick points. i think this election was about a lot of things. i think it is more complicated than that. i would start with the candidates. mitt romney is a good man. he wasn't as natural a communicator as the president . he had a habit of saying things that didn't help him. the president is a natural and gifted communicator. the democrats had a much better get out the vote operation. republicans need to focus on that. democrats were better in the swing states in getting at the base. the third thing is the following. 55% of moderates voted for barack obama for president. why did the republicans lose the moderates? the farther right positions gove
member on the energy and commerce committee, the gentleman from california, mr. waxman. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized for five minutes. mr. waxman: thank you very much for yielding to me. mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to the bill. a warmer planet has less ice, higher sea levels, more water in the atmosphere, more powerful storms, more frequent floods, dreier droughts and worse wildfires. two weeks ago hurricane sandy brought a powerful and tragic reminder that the combination of sea level rise and more powerful storms can be deadly, devastating and extremely costly. hurricane sandy was the only -- only the latest and most dramatic in a series of extreme weather events. over the past two years we've had recordbreaking temperatures , the worst drought in 50 years , major floods, numerous tornadoes and thunderstorms and vast wildfires. this is what global warming looks like. and if we continue to ignore it it will soon look far worse. we should be doing all we can to reduce carbon pollution and slow global warming. but this bill instead tries to s
have come together to outline mathematics' integral role in solving real world issues including energy freedom, medical challenges and weather events. as someone who went went on to work in renewable energy for two decades, i know that mathematics can be an essential feature to find solutions to many challenges facing humanity. mr. mcnerney: it will spotlight the importance of mathematics. the national focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics education will ensure the united states remains global competitive force in the marketplace. people across our nation are working together to create a better world, and it's important their efforts be recognized and supported. i encourage my colleagues to join me in recognizing the benefits and goals of the mathematics of planet earth project. thank you, madam speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania rise? >> i ask permission to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, madam speaker. i rise to ur
idea and harness some of the energy around the idea and help some of the individual part of the party going forward. i think he'll help them. >> you were with the president in iowa a emotional place for him. he doesn't have anymore campaign ahead of him. give us a short picture what it was like being with him as it was coming to an end. >> he's not a very publicly emotional guy as most people know. he said later that he was struck by the last event. everybody is tired. you're the walking dead. both campaigns. every reporter. you're trying to make it through. but he looked out that night and saw all these faces of a these people who believed with him and with him in 2007. i don't mean random faces. i mean, three or people he actually recognized and knew and kind of waivedded at him and waived back. and that's struck him. i think it impacted him. you could see he got a little emotional. he was reflective as it sounds like romney was as well. i remember morning of the election we were waiting to do the interviews the day of election. he said i thought how about romney and his supporters
to be straight reaction to the re-election. there's a lot of pent-up energy in that room about being able to ask the president some serious questions and get him on the record on all of these issues. >> reporter: eight months. >> eight months. back to the fiscal cliff, without giving me a migraine headache, what happens if we go off the fiscal cliff? what happens? >> well, taxes go up more than they should suddenly. then we negotiate afterwards a more reasonable solution. and i don't think in that sense that there's anything irreversible, and i think the president would go to the cliff and over because it could be rectified. but i think the real point that i'm trying to make, which in our country, we are having a hard time with, you can't make a budget at a press conference or an announcement of one thing or a showdown over one issue. a budget actually needs a framework. and every other government i know, the government lays out a proposed framework. that we still don't have in this country. we are always playing a game on one issue. the debt ceiling or the top marginal tax rate or $1.6 trillion
